    An enjoyable game and a good win. The fielding was terrific. Kent’s fielding was dire.
    Two home defeats v Hants and Somerset where we should have chased down to win cost us qualification.

    Another disapointing t20 campaign. Thought the bowling unit was great this tournament. Batting really let us down. So many out of form batters, yet the most damage was done by our best and most in form player. Northeasts innings over the first 9/10 games were utterly criminal, him and Maynard need to take a long hard look at themselves for that gameplan .


    T20 campaign to forget, but still very much in contention in the championship and defending champs in the 50 over comp.

    I think where we finished is about right for the ability within the squad - it was an improvement on the last couple of seasons I believe.

    My main complaint is about the poor wickets we played on in Cardiff in our early T20 matches, batting was our weaker discipline and we played on pitches which were never going to lead to a confident batting side.

    I think Northeast prevented this from being a worse campaign. Too many batsmen didn’t produce the goods. So he had to stick around. His strike rate wasn’t great but when you are playing with two key batsmen in Lloyd and Carlson in really poor form it’s a big problem. Cooke and Labuschagne were average. It didn’t leave a lot left.

    Am just watching the test match and, with each passing minute, Sam Billings is confirming my initial impression that I’ve never seen a wicketkeeper in senior cricket make the job look as hard as he does.

    It's a tough one, but I'd argue that half the reason carlson had to go ballistic from ball 1 was because northeast had devastated our run rate by the time he got in. His innings were so poor that everyone else had real run rate pressure to deal with. I'd have much rathered lose a couple of games more heavily by attacking, but actually have a chance of winning others. Lloyds form was worrying, he's always going to be patchy, but I'd have expected him to produce over the course of the tournament. I'd quite like to see Lloyd and Carlson sit out of the next championship match. Give them a game off and hope the 50 over stuff sees them return to form.

    Van Der Gugten is playing for the second team today, so, hopefully, he’ll be back for the Notts four day game.

    I may have to bite the bullet and follow the hundred this year. Michael Hogan has signed for the Southern Brave. Fingers crossed he takes a ton of wickets and they offer him a nice fat contract for next year aswell !!!

    I noticed that Labuschagne has hit form at last (for Australia)

    Was happy to see that. Phenomenal player, and an absolute diamond of a bloke. He's one of our own is marnus

    100%, will always be for Marnus as if he was one of our own. Great guy and great player.

    Nice to see he gets a bit of recognition, Hoges was and possibly still is the best bowler in domestic cricket. Best Glammy signing ever.

    He's a definite candidate - possibly needed a bit more pace to play international cricket, but there's no week in, week out county seamer over the last decade that I'd swap him for.

    Pleased he's got himself a contract for the Hundred, but I think our already slim hopes of successfully defending the Royal London Cup have taken a big knock mind.

    I was hoping to get to some of the one day cup games this season so shame Hogan wont be involved. Good on him but would have been nice for him to play for the nominally Welsh, Sophia Gardens based, side in the competition.

    I guess so but this will be a good payday for him and it is richly deserved.

    Oh no qualms from me, its a nice little sweetener for him at the end of a great first class career. I know hed have little to do with how and which of the franchises pick him up.

    Cooke and Van Der Gugten return to the Glamorgan squad for their four day game with leaders Notts starting tomorrow - Prem Sisodiya also in the fourteen;-

    I do wonder if it could end up paying off for us. If he has a good hundred campaign it's a bit more incentive to maybe stay on for another year or 2.
